189birds I'm so jealous I would love to meet him, also hello everyone *hugs* I'm awful at boards and talking but I've also been super busy since paizocon, how are you all?

John I read your fingers or joints hurt and ppl were giving you suggestions, as a mechanic in a past life and on the ranch I live on, we use marvel oil. It's red and is used for penetration into loosing up rusted or locked up joints nuts or bolts on equipment, if you take a bit and rub it into the skin over the joint that hurts it does wonders, but if you do too much you will start to taste cherries all the time so only do it at most once a day.

Other then that I've already reserved my room at the doubletree for next years paizocon, and I saw someone mention they might start a thread in order for all of us to hang out or plan I'm for that 100% please let me know if you do.

For anyone who is on here and gamed with me, I played Clifton, or Weenees at the con.

Well I am thinking of an ethanol powered lawn mower now. If you are a gardner and bring the fuel for that it would not be inappropriate.

This was intended as a joke. Once again, I'm sorry if it was taken seriously.


All very good points.

I would say that's true about just anyone who uses the terms liberal, conservative, or any of the other labels. I know a lot of Republicans who are just fine with same-sex marriage even though the party platform is against it. They don't believe that it's in the platform even when I show them. They just vote Republican because that's what they've always done. There are similar things with liberals and libertarians.

I think that most people are far more similar when we sit down and just discuss things without using labels.

He definitely lived of to the hype, he was hilarious and charismatic.

Today was in general quite nice, I found out that a bunch of my coworkers are queer as well and had a nice talk- its good to not be alone in queerness.

I'm leaving soon for another appointment for my dizziness. The doctors found something and they want to do another test. They got me scheduled quickly and my test is about 3 hours long. I hope they can figure this out. It's physically and emotionally draining. Yesterday I spent a good portion of my day curled in a ball, holding my head, and literally crying because the pain and dizziness was too much. I couldn't even sit because it took too much effort to do that.

I'm sorry that I have taken too much of your time already with my venting about so many things lately.

Vent all you need, I wish I could do more than just listen/read and keep you in my thoughts.

Go ahead and vent, Bob. That's what friends are for, to listen, at the very least. Just like you and everyone else here listened when I vented here.

Agreed. I have known a few other people that struggled with mystery ailments and seen how hard it is to deal with. Can't think of anything that would stress me out more than not knowing what is tearing me up inside. Vent as much as you need, that's one of the reasons we come here. To support each other in time of need.

What all others before have said. You will never ever be considered irrelevant here :-)

That last sentence in your post was one of your small inner demons talking. Not you

I hope you can get better soon. Big hugs and lots of positive thoughts for your and anybody that needs them :-)

I have to share this...

A friend of mine had his youngest child at 42; the kid is six now. Said friend recently helped his parents move out of his childhood home and into a retirement community, and in the process of cleaning out his parents' attic, he found a large collection of his childhood toys... including a bunch of well-loved Star Wars action figures from the late '70s/early '80s.

He decided to give the action figures to his son, who hasn't actually seen the original Star Wars movies, but had some level of familiarity with the characters. ("R2-D2! Darth Vader! Luke Skyhopper! Gold Robot!") The kid was especially happy with the Lando Calrissian figure, and told his dad that it was "the coolest" and "his favorite TV guy!"

Slightly confused, my friend asked his son what the character's name was.

He held the figure aloft and shouted, "Neil DeGrasse Tyson!"


:) The kid knows cool when he sees it.

I hope it goes well and vent as much as you need too...it is all good. Plus we care so hearing what is happening to you is also a good thing.

My daughter and I just came back from our church's first annual interfaith LGBTQ Pride service. It was incredibly moving. We're Presbyterian (PCUSA). Our associate pastor is an out cis gay man (which we knew when we hired him). Other local clergy participated in the service, and there were people from a diverse number of local communities of faith: American Baptist, United Methodist, Congregationalist, Unitarian Universalist, Episcopal, United Church of Christ, AME Zion, Roman Catholic, Conservative Jewish, Reform Jewish, a Muslim community (not sure which one), Tibetan Budhist, Zen Budhist, and Wiccan.

The amount of love I felt in that space moved me to tears...and I don't cry easily.

The experience really gives me hope for the future.


I just got home. Tired now. Going to bed. Good night, everyone.


Speaking of venting...

So I just got home from game tonight and realized I left my tablet on the roof of my car. My main access to the internet and other stuff. I am now stuck with this ancient computer. Worst yet I just got back into to the point where I can start saving money to get the women stuff that I need...replacing this will just make it the more delayed.

With everything I feel like...depressed...frustrated...etc. :(

Sorry Selene, hope you get better soon. <hugz>


Damn yo! That's why I don't like tablets. Way too easy to forget in places, and I have a history of leaving expensive stuff in places (I nearly left an expensive purse in a changeroom!!! Thankfully some good samaritan gave it to the checkout to look after it)

I hope you called back to the place where your game was and had them look for it. I know its not likely that it survived being blown off your car but miracles happen sometimes.

Hugs in any case.


So sorry to hear about your tablet, Selene. *Hug* It might be a bit late, but have you thought about using a small laptop or netbook case for your next tablet? I keep my tablet in my laptop case. I use mine for displaying programming related PDFs. That way, I can keep coding without switching between the compiler and Acrobat Reader. Both Walmart and Target have decently-priced tablets. And, I think Walmart still has a layaway program this late after the Holidays.

There were no clergy from the local AME Zion church at the service, but there was at least one person in attendance that I know is a member there.

Oh, Selene, that's terrible! Here's a virtual hug. Store it until you're ready to use it.


@Everyone: Thanks *hugs*

I did go back and looked...searched the DMs driveway...and drove the same was keeping a eye out. I did not find out. I asked the him to keep a eye out...maybe he can find it in the daylight...but seeing how I have not got a text from him...I doubt it.

There is a outside chance it is in his house...

But it is just the way my life is...sigh

I am probably going have to wait till Christmas to replace it...so I am going have to live without.

Selene, don't forget about using a case.

*Accepts hugs* Woke up with a Charley-Horse style muscle cramp, in both thighs. Standing up straight was so painful, I was nearly in tears and walking was nearly impossible. This wasn't how I wanted to start my Friday.

Sorry to hear about your tablet Selene.

I have some news about what's going on with me. It's not officially a diagnosis yet, but it looks like I probably have vestibular migraines. I should find out for sure next week.

Bob, If you really got vestibular migraines, you can at least hope that some of the medicationes that are out there for it do you good (I am that lucky).

Have fun John!
